Example of a SA-8 "Geko" at RAF Spadeadam

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know if it is possible for a civvie/TA person to look at the SA-8 Geko being used at RAF Spadeadam?

    I am potentially doing some work on one and wanted to see in and around the engine bay.
     
  2. SR,
    If you're TA, the Spade guys should not have a problem showing you around. Give Spade EW Ops a bell (sorry, I don't have a service directory on me for the number) and arrange a visit. They have quite a slick standard tour of the Spade kit on the ranges and in the sheds as well as all the derelict space facilities.

    Alternatively, the SA-8 is normally brought to the Waddington airshow in Lincolnshire during June/July.
    Regards,
